Portobello Angling Club was founded in
Dublin in 1995. The club has 18 members and is
affiliated to the National Coarse Fishing Federation of
Ireland (NCFFI). We also have close links with the
Central Fisheries Board, the

a close relationship with our local tackle shop,
Southside Angling, on Cork Street, Dublin 8.
